Beverley Town Council and St Mary’s Church are supporting the nationwide ‘Great Get Together’ event aimed at promoting the community to come together to celebrate.

Taking place on Saturday 23 June from 11AM to 4PM, both the Town Council and St Mary’s Church are inviting residents to join them for their first joint ‘Great Get Together’.
